I am so happy L'Oreal have brought out a new mascara, the L'Oreal Paris Miss Manga Mascara. Manga are comics created in Japan apparently. Those black & white cartoon sketches of boys and girls with the big sad eyes and pointy fringes, and....well I am not doing this justice so maybe Google might help. It's pretty clear that I was definitely going to buy this. I'm one huge L'Oreal mascara addict as I've found that over the years, most of my favorite high street mascara products have been for them. - L'Oreal False Lash Flutter been pretty amazing for the money.
Anyway, back to the Manga influence, L'Oreal is trying to offer the huge baby doll eyes, with extra emphasis on your bottom lashes, plus another bonus is you can pick up the Miss Manga Mascara in Pop Violet and Tropical Turquoise. This may be aimed towards a younger audience, and more brave, but its good to have the choice...I guess.
Onto the mascara itself, the brush does take getting used to when doing upper lashes because it's thicker on one end, but the tapered brush end does help get the little corner lashes and is the right size and shape for working on bottom lashes. There is a bendy part about half way down the wand, bit like the Maybelline Mega Plush Volum Mascara, which makes the end of the applicator move in different directions under pressure, but I can't understand how this helped with the application. I certainly don't feel like it's made the slightest bit of difference to mine, so I guess this is just selling tricks to make it sound more interesting. If anything, I prefer my wands not to bend. They feel broken when they do.
However, the result of the L'Oreal Paris Miss Manga Mascara is what I look for in a mascara, I find that this mascara definitely gives me lots volume and length but the separation can be a bit of a struggle. It doesn't smudge or flake and stays on all day. This isn't going to overtake my favourite L'Oreal False Lash Flutter mascara, but it is defiantly one of my favourites of theirs.
